What does the NDP surge mean for Alberta? STUDENTS could be running the province!

Rebel Staff
 

The NDP is surging in what I considered the most conservative city in the country.

How is this happening and what does it mean? And who is running for the NDP?

Students. No joke.

DONALD ALLAN You nailed it with your comment below. I can’t say it better…..ACCURATE AS HELL and half our people will vote for the marxist millionaire The Shinny Pony because he has “nice Hair”. Sort of tells us how shallowwe are as a society…Does it not?

Calgary Major is socialist/populist you believe or not. Mostly conservative city population does not elect socialist Major.

Correction – the most conservative LARGE city. Obviously there are other more conservative cities such as Lethbridge for example. In fact, I think the idea that Calgary or Alberta are more conservative may be arguably untrue evidenced by at least a decade of voting in a faux conservative party, no more conservative than the BC NDP.

I think Wildrose can do this.

Don’t forget — all this fearmongering about the NDP gaining power is based on POLLS.

And just how accurate have they been over the last few years…? (Hint: not very…)

Seriously, people, lighten up.

Is the NDP a potential threat? Yes. But how many students are there, compared to how many actual Alberta voters? They’re still a small percentage of the voting population.

The NDP is not, I repeat, NOT the problem facing Alberta in this election. Anybody in favor of the NDP is either naive (doesn’t really know what they would actually do), looking for a handout (I include students and unions in this), or Machiavellian with a desire to destroy this province.

The real problem is the mainstream media, or the Media Party, as the Rebels call it. The msm is doing everything it can to discredit and marginalize Alberta’s only true option — the Wiltdrose. So the question becomes twofold: 1) how do we get the Wildrose Party accurately portrayed in the mainstream media?, and 2) how do we get the largest turnout of voters in Alberta’s history to exercise their franchise?

Calgary is now slip sliding away down the progressive path at a depressingly fast rate. This can be evidenced from the editorials, front pages, and letters in the very mediocre Calgary Herald. Even their financial columnists are spinning the environmental spiel re climate change and carbon taxes. I’m going to end my subscription soon, but will keep the Saturday paper for the two sudokus !

It’s obviously morning. The grammar of that last post is horrendous.

Bill Elder – " … I was planning to relocate back to Alberta to finish out my career,"

If the NDP take office, I might seriously considering moving the Saskatchewan when the only remaining conservative government is located. If only we could clone Brad Wall 9 times, one for each province.

Now, where did we put that Dolly research … …

I doubt that Ontario would have voted in another NDP government after the Bob Rae fiasco. But the Liberals managed to fool the electorate and move to the left of the NDP , securing the massive public service union votes and advertizing money. We now have NDP socialists like Wynne masquerading as liberals and they are destroying Ontario. If Alberta goes left there will be no place to hide from these socialist governments and the country could follow if Trudeau ever manages to get in power. You are not free and you have no liberty if the governments confiscate most of your hard earned money. Albertans should be wise and give the Wild Rose a chance .

I was planning to relocate back to Alberta to finish out my career, but not now I will never live where there is any NDP political power = or Liberal. It now seems having universities in your province is a guarantee of kleptocracy and authoritarianism.

If the NDP ever got to run Alberta the province would be broke within 6 mos.

Dennis – “Wild Rose would be more acceptable for a 4 year trial..”

Exactly. Give them a trial period, with a majority so they can actually get something done.

Leon – “how in the world can people seriously consider the NDP ?”

I have no idea. Every time I ask the one family member I know that will vote NDP to explain himself, all I get is a link to a propaganda site. He likes the idea of the NDP raising the corporate tax rate, thinking that it will “stick it to the corporations”. But any explanation that it will be the people that will pay the corporate tax increase, not the corporations, it just falls on deaf ears. Frustration!

Alex Pilmeister…good link, boy he nailed it didn’t he.
how in the world can people seriously consider the NDP ?

With the NDP track record across the country i would never support this party..Wild Rose would be more acceptable for a 4 year trial..

Give the Wildrose a majority and we don’t have to worry about NDP bs.

Ezra, you made some very strong points and I am glad you are here doing the research, even if at this point it is as you said, just a quick look over the NDP website. We need your voice of reason.

It is my opinion that the largest percentage of those voters indicating their voting intention is NDP are either young people or from another province bringing their failed politics here to Alberta. Of course I no proof whatsoever of that.

We can only hope that the Conservative voters come to their senses and vote for the only Conservative party in Alberta, the Wildrose.

One of the loudest objections I hear to the Wildrose is that they are inexperienced at running a government. At least all of the Wildrose candidates are older and have some life experience and some DO have political experience, but from what Ezra just revealed, his from his “quick pick”, ten NDP candidates not only do not have any experience in running a government but they little to no life experience either.

So if you are going to vote NDP because the WIldrose have no experience in running a government, well the NDP have far less experience.
